JK Rowling is embroiled in yet another transphobia row after she directed fans to a website selling badges and stickers saying 'transwomen are men'.
The author, 55, appeared to take aim at her critics yesterday, tweeting a photograph of herself wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan: 'This witch doesn't burn'.
She followed up her message with a link to the Wild Womyn Workshop, writing: 'If you are (or know) a witch who wants one of these, don't buy from cynical chancers.'
Furious critics were quick to point out that the website sells a series of other items they deemed 'transphobic', with users sharing images of badges reading 'f*** your pronouns' and 'trans activism is misogyny'.
Wild Womyn Workshop, which has a category dedicated to 'gender critical' items, also sells a badge reading 'dead men don't rape' alongside stickers stating 'trans-ideology erases women.'

Social media users accused Rowling of promoting transphobia by sharing the link, with one writing: 'How about considering supporting trans-inclusive organisations instead of incredibly transphobic ones?
'Every time I think you can't be a worse TERF, you somehow do. The bar is literally so low.'
Others branded the Harry Potter author a TERF - a slur meaning a trans exclusionary radical feminist - while urging Rowling to 'understand the damage and hatefulness you have caused a group of people.'
Another critic added: 'Coming out being transphobic proudly now... wow... I hope one day you understand the damage and hatefulness you are continuously causing a group of people when you could have used your influence and money to help people.
'You honestly should be ashamed.'
A third added: 'Words cannot express how disappointed I am in you.'

Responding to the criticism, Angela Wild, who runs Wild Womyn Workshop, told MailOnline: 'Men are not women. No-one can change sex.
'These simple statements are now considered "transphobic" and controversial. If some people are offended by my products because they are triggered by biological reality I am sorry for them but it has got nothing to do with me.
'Don't like my products? Don't buy them. It's not unlawful to tell the truth.'
Ms Wild, a self-proclaimed lesbian feminist, is a co-founder of the anti-trans, lesbian separatist group Get the L Out, which staged a
